Oh, what a world!

Journalism was my focus
But nowadays media stories leave me hopeless
Oh, what a world!
When babies die, innocent lives are slain
A person can shoot up a crowd then plead they're insane
Walking away after horrendous crimes
Aren't you blessed to be a part of these times?
Read a story the other day about a toddler beaten
Of course, that's everyday in this world we interact and meet in
I'm almost scared to scroll through my newsfeed
And though my cries fall silent, my pen will still bleed
Oh, what a world!

This poem is about: 
Our world
